Ontario fruit industry invests in table grapes

Ten years ago, the Ontario Fresh Grape Growers’ marketing board began a partnership with Vineland, with funding from OMAFRA and a range of industry partners, to try to develop domestic contenders in multiple table grape categories. Enter Jupiter, a blue, seedless grape developed at the University of Arkansas in the 1990s, which was first planted at Vineland in 2014. The variety has shown excellent winter hardiness, a prerequisite for the Ontario market, and it matures after Sovereign Coronation, extending the harvesting season.
